Trampoline Artist Profile: The Last Battle


Let’s face it.  I don’t really care if The Last Battle are the best new act in the world or the worst new act in the world, their head wear is fucking sensational and I cannot wait to see them live!  It’s about time a band came along to challenge The Kays in the wooly hat stakes and from the looks of the picture above it looks like the Last Battle are well up for the challenge!

Fear not though, they have real ability and substance to equal their excellent head wear!  They describe themselves rather beautifully on their myspace page:

It was only a mere 3 months ago that THE LAST BATTLE began writing, recording and rehearsing in each other’s front rooms. With some of the boys and girls having never even played an instrument before let alone take to a stage, the 8-piece alt folksters have already played a handful of shows and are busy putting the finishing touches to their as-of-yet-untitled debut album. Through their boy/girl duets, sweeping cello and well arranged use of traditional instruments they create songs of death, love and longing.

I for one cannot wait to hear these guys live.  There is a lot of talk about them in Edinburgh.  A lot of positive murmers.  From what I’ve heard on their myspace and the positive reviews I’ve heard from others to date this is one band that definitely should not be missed.  I think I am most excited about these guys on 14th.  I do love it when a band come on the radar who seem to tick all your boxes.  It’s going to be lovely to see if they live up to my expectations.

The Last Battle play Trampoline on Saturday 14th November at the Wee Red Bar, Edinburgh College of Art.  Doors 7pm.  Entry £5 or £3 with a valid student card.
